Puncheon Creek couple ‘holding onto each other’

-A A +A

House sitter terrified during flood that raised creek estimated 15 feet in hour

“The inspector said the best bet is to take a bulldozer to it,” said Lorraine, who battled back tears Saturday morning from her front porch as she looked across her front yard at the creek that destroyed her home.
